Homework Help: Constant velocity moments problem

  1. Apr 29, 2008 #1
    If a something is rotating about an axis with a constant velocity is the sum of the acting moments 0 since no acceleration is occuring?
    Moment = mass x acceleration x distance
    If acceleration is 0, the moment is 0.
    Is this correct?

    I'm assuming that by acting moment you mean torque, in which case yes, that is correct.
